Memjet North Ryde Pty Ltd

Memjet has grown to become a global leader in colour printing technologies that provide remarkable productivity, profitability, and innovation. As a worldwide provider of digital inkjet technologies, Memjet has offices in San Diego, Dublin, Sydney, and Singapore. We enable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to achieve fast, high-resolution digital printing by integrating our technology within their existing systems.

An exciting opportunity exists for an experienced full time Process Development Engineer.

 Main focus of the role:

  1. Responsible for owning the printhead shim attach process module and for discovering, designing, developing and deploying it and its related processes for the manufacture of print head products; from conceptual level through to manufacturing implementation.
  2. To advance process technologies thereby enabling creative and innovative product design solutions which can be up-scaled to high volume manufacturing and meet customer’s requirement for cost, reliability, quality and performance.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Tasks include to:

  • Deliver robust printhead shim attach processes to ensure products meet customer requirements.
  • Ensure that the delivered processes comply with design stability and manufacturing control.
  • Identify and resolve knowledge gaps using Rapid Learning Cycles (RLC) to discover and design products that are manufacturing process friendly.
  • Use problem solving methodologies and Design of Experiments (DOEs) to resolve issues, reduce risks and optimize processes.
  • Generate and complete documentation to deliver fully transferable, stable and capable processes.  Examples of documentation include:
    • product and process requirement specifications
    • process work instructions
    • process failure mode and effects analysis (PFMEA)
  • Adhere to the company’s Engineering Change Request and Design Change Control (ECRDCC) processes.
  • Assist and participate in the transfer and deployment of processes to our manufacturing partners.  Followed by technical support after line transfer and manufacturing release.
  • May travel overseas for transfer and support of manufacturing processes in the future. 


  • Knowledge of adhesive dispensing/screen-printing and adhesive curing processes as used in attaching or laminating of components or substrates for the purpose of hermetic and fluidic sealing; such as in the application of electronic or mechanical devices or components in corrosive or aggressive environments.  The knowledge of controlling the associated process equipment is very critical.
  • Knowledge in adhesive materials; such as their bulk, interfacial and adhesion properties; especially for the purpose of manufacturing storage, controlled dispensation and curing will be advantageous.
  • Knowledge in substrate and component surface treatments; such as plasma, buffing and liquid cleaning for the purpose of improving adhesion or dispensation is also advantageous.
  • Knowledge in identifying, assessing and controlling work hazards.
  • Knowledge of Statistics Process Control (SPC), PFMEA, DOE and statistical software e.g. JMP
  • Exposure to high volume manufacturing and the concept of lean manufacturing.
  • Experienced with design document control systems, having worked within an ISO 9001 environment.
  • Prior working experience in office, cleanroom laboratory and manufacturing environments.


  • Interpersonal skills and abilities to communicate and work in a team environment amongst all levels of the organization.
  • Ability to plan projects and meet project goals in a fast-paced environment.



  • Engineering degree plus equivalent relevant experience


  • Post graduate engineering degree (e.g. MSc in Engineering or PhD.)
  • Post graduate training in related topics (e.g. encapsulant and adhesive chemistry & etc.)


Only applicants with full, unrestricted and ongoing rights to work in Australia will be considered for this role.
